Cock-a-mo

History

Cock-A-Mo is produced by cross breeding the American Eskimo Dog and the Cocker Spaniel purebreds. He is calm, loyal, gentle and playful – qualities which make it a wonderful family pet. These dogs are talented in competitive obedience and agility. They also love cold weather, particularly the snow. However, they do just as well in the heat of the summer as long as lots of drinking water is available. Find out more about this designer dog below:
